Campus-based prevention coordinators are under increasing pressure to evaluate their alcohol and other drug (AOD) and violence prevention programs. The reason boils down to a single word: accountability. This 3-page flyer describes the role of evaluation in program planning and implementation; skills, expertise, qualifications, and experience to look for when seeking an evaluator; incentives for the evaluator; questions to ask when considering an evaluator; and how to network to find the right evaluator. The flyer also describes five publications available through the Higher Education Center that can provide an introduction to evaluation basics.
